El Paso — Montwood High School might have the best football coach in town in
Chuck Veliz. The Rams might also be the best team in El Paso.
You can debate those points but there is no doubt Montwood has the most caring and compassionate student body.
The students voted Allan Acuna their Homecoming King. He is a special needs student who is also a special Olympian. Allan wants to attend El Paso Community College and one day become a carpenter. He also will be a torch runner at the regional Special Olympics in Austin.
Allan's smile was brighter than the lights at the Student Activities Center on Friday as he and Homecoming Queen Devany Serrano shared a spotlight dance as Montwood's King and Queen of Homecoming.
